Islington railway station is located on the Gawler Central line.[1] Situated in the inner northern Adelaide suburb of Prospect, it is six kilometres from the Adelaide station.

Islington yard[edit]

Opposite the station lay a TNT yard that was also used by Holden. The yard had closed by the late 1990s, and remained unused until 2008 when it was completely demolished to make way for a new residential development, which may include the station being re-built or upgraded. The site is currently being decontaminated.[2]

North of the station lie the Islington Railway Workshops.[3] To the west of the station lies the Australian Rail Track Corporation standard gauge line to Crystal Brook.

Transport links[edit]

Islington station is served by Adelaide Metro's route 300 Suburban Connector.[4]
